Is anyone familiar with the seersuck that is either 100% cotton or the Robt. Kaufman that is 50% poly and 50% cotton. They are the same price just wondered of one had a nicer hand. I want to make a wrap summer dress. thanks guys!

Unless you really like to iron, I'd go with the 50-50.

Ah, good point. I hadn't even thought of that.

Since I'm hot all the time I would go with 100% cotton for sure!

I've fondled the 50-50 stuff and I like it (and I hate ironing.) I've encountered some pretty nasty 100% cotton seersucker, so I wouldn't invest heavily in that until I'd seen a swatch of it. This stuff might be okay, unlike some of the junk I've seen.

I went back and see that both brands are 50/50 cotton poly. I went with the Kaufmann brand which I hope will be a good quality. When I get it I'll report back and give it a yah or nay. Now just to get it sewn up before the season is over! Thanks all for your help!
